SUMMER TIME MOONLIGHT SEA TURTLE WALKS

June 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 & 30 , 2016
July 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 & 14, 2016
The Museum of Discovery and Science invites the whole family to participate in an evening of sea turtle discovery this summer. Once again, the annual evening Turtle Walks will occur in June and July. Visitors will enjoy an entire evening of sea turtle exploration and identification while uncovering the natural history and myths of turtles. Nature permitting, participants will have a chance to watch a 300 pound Loggerhead sea turtle venture out of the ocean to lay her eggs. A female loggerhead sea turtle may travel thousands of miles to return to the beach where she hatched as a baby to lay her own eggs as an adult.
At 9:00 p.m., the adventure begins at the Museum of Discovery and Science with an informative hands-on session about turtles (land, fresh water and salt water) with an expanded focus on sea turtles. Guests will also meet the Museum’s Ambassador Loggerhead sea turtle who is almost one year old. Once it reaches an appropriate size it will be released in the ocean. Museum staff will provide answers to questions about nesting, threats and conservation before proceeding to the beach.
The adventure continues to Fort Lauderdale beach where Museum expert guides lead guests to the sea turtle’s nesting grounds to look for amazing sea turtles. We cannot guarantee a sea turtle will be spotted on every walk but when it does happen it is a natural wonder that no one will ever forget.
Guests should be prepared to walk approximately one to two miles, and provide their own transportation and snacks.
Participants must be 9 years of age or older.
